Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.
— David Wagoner
Greetings dearest yoga students,
The Avalon Yoga hike was a beautiful experience. There is such sacredness found right under our feet, wherever we happen to be. The above poem by David Wagner speaks to the power of stillness and presence. There is great wisdom in just learning to be quiet and still and “letting the forest find you”. If you feel lost, unsure or confused about where you are going, I suggest you take his advice and “Stand Still”; chances are very good that what you are seeking is right there in front of you just waiting for your path to find you.

Tuesday, June 5th 7-9pm – Yoga Sutra Study Group
Please join us as we continue our study of the sacred text, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The Yoga Sutras have many translations and offer us a scientific approach to our yoga practice. These Sutras, or threads, hold a wealth of information and point us in the direction of wholeness and enlightenment. Together we will interpret sections of the sutras and read from a variety of translations. Please bring a journal, something to write with a copy of the sutras (if you have one) and an open mind ready for discussion! Light Refreshments will be served. $15 Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
